Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market Synopsis:


Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market is estimated to reach USD 125 Million by 2030 at a CAGR of 14% from 2020 to 2030.

Polyhydroxyalkanoate polymers are produced by microbial fermentation of unprocessed raw materials. They are produced under the brand name Biopol. Polyhydroxyalkanoate polymers are extracted from renewable sources such as vegetable oil, starch, proteins, and others. They are non-toxic, provide high UV resistance and exhibit biocompatible properties. They also show optical display and piezoelectric effect. Owing to these characteristics, Polyhydroxyalkanoate Polymers are used in various applications such as packaging, biomedical, biofuels and drugs.


As per our market analysis, the Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market is classified into Polyhydroxybutyrate and Polyhydroxybutyrate blended with copolymers. Polyhydroxybutyrate is a thermoplastic polymer with the properties similar to that of polypropylene. It holds an edge over polypropylene based products due to its eco-friendly and nontoxic nature, as well as better physical features. The molecular weight of Polyhydroxybutyrate varies from 50,000 to a million depending on growth and method of extraction. The prominent trends and factors in the Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market are production of bio-based products which are compatible to the environment and help to attain sustainable development.

Regional Analysis:


The Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market is segregated into five regions namely Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, Latin America and the Middle East & Africa. Among these, Asia Pacific region is set to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, 2017-2023. China has emerged as the leading player in this region owing to the growing usage in biomedical applications. The advancement in technology and availability of raw materials extracted from wastes of sugar palm oil and others has propelled India and Japan to witness a massive growth in the Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market. Currently, it has been observed that the petrochemical derived products were replaced by bio polymers in order to reduce the cost of manufacturing and production process, preserve the petroleum sources, and other environmental factors.


Globally, European region accounted for the major shareholder of Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market in 2015 and anticipated to continue its dominance during the forecast period, 2017-2023. Germany, U.K and Italy are the leading players in this region due its continual growth and development in the production of environmental friendly products.


During the forecast period, North American region has been projected to witness a massive growth in the Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market due to its growing demand observed in packaging, agriculture and food sectors. Availability of raw materials and the development in technology has driven countries like U.S. and Canada to shift their focus from petrochemical derived product towards naturally produced polymers in order to attain ecological balance, save the cost of production and conserve the petroleum sources. The growing production of sugarcane in Latin America has recognized a significant growth in Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market during the forecast period. Moreover, the Middle East & Africa has recognized a rapid growth in the development of Polyhydroxyalkanoate Polymers due to its increasing usage in end-use industries.


Segmentation:


The Polyhydroxyalkanoate Market is differentiated into Type, Technology and Application. Market by type is fragmented as Polyhydroxyalkanoate and polyhydroxybutyrate blended with co-polymers. Polyhydroxybutyrate Polymers are produced by biological degradation of microorganisms. It has been observed that biopolymers have already substituted petrochemical based product due to its exceptional features such as bio-compatibility, non-toxicity and environmental oriented nature. On the basis of technology, biopolymers can be produced by genetically engineered plants and bacteria. With the implementation of these technologies, biopolymers can be produced within 24 hours rather than conventional polymers that take 3 days. Biomedical, packaging, drug delivery carriers, biofuels and drugs are included in the market segregation on the basis of application. Among these, a surge in demand has been projected in the packaging sector during the forecast period, 2017-2023.

Recent Development

June 2021- Danimer Scientific has announced the completion of debottlenecking initiatives at its Winchester, Ky., production plant, which enables the firm to boost up the production of Nodax, the company’s signature polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), to meet its aim to attain plant’s complete yearly run rate capacity of over 20 million lbs of Nodax- based resins by the end of this year.
As stated earlier, Nodax PHA is obtained from natural fermentation processes including plant oil from crops like canola. The material is known degrade in numerous conditions at the end of its lifecycle, including soil and marine environments, industrial composting facilities, and backyard compost units. The material can be used in a broad range of applications.

November 2021-- Danimer Scientific, Inc., has announced the signing of a long-term collaborative arrangement with Total Corbion PLA, for the supply of a biobased polymer, Luminy® PLA, used in the production of compostable products. Both of these firms are prominent players in the bioplastics market targeted to develop and produce biodegradable materials. As the firm level-up its signature polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), Nodax®, this agreement improves Danimer's ability to satisfy customer needs for resins, which need a mix of PLA- and PHA-based inputs.
